I must say, the playbook seems like it's going to be a really impressive device. They really stepped it up for this device. I think they really undertand the importance of entering a new type of market with a fresh start and a new strategy.

But how deep does their online catalog go? Will they have digital split EPs and rare tracks without any DRM coding?
